Tennessee offensive coordinator Larry Scott and defensive coordinator Bob Shoop met with the media after spring practice on Thursday.

 If Georgia Tech ran a conventional offense, it wouldn’t pose the same threat to Tennessee in the season opener.

The Yellow Jackets aren’t devoid of talent or experience. They will return nine starters on offense and eight on defense from a team that went 9-4 in 2016.

But any discussion of Georgia Tech football invariably turns to its system, the option-oriented offense that coach Paul Johnson brought with him from Navy in 2008.

The “flexbone” is altogether different from anything Tennessee will face this season. Fear of the unknown is a factor in any opener. It will be exacerbated by Georgia Tech’s offense.

Much of that is in the presentation, though.
